You will then move to the sea and pass by the Arc of the Triomf, Ciudadela Park, the Olympic Village, the Olympic Port, the beach and the fisherman’s quarter, called Barceloneta, the Port Vell, and Plaza de Colon with its famous Columbus monument.
After that, you will go through the Ramblas avenue, make a short stop at the Olympic Stadium Lluis Companys, then visit the Montjuïc Castle where you will be able to enjoy a cable car ride with precious views of the city and pass through some sports facilities like the Palau Sant Jordi, the Olympic swimming pool Picornell.
You will get then to the Spanish Village and admire a collection of traditional buildings from all over Spain before driving back to the city center passing by the Venetian Towers, the Montjuïc fountains, the MNAC and the shopping mall Las Arenas, rebuilt over the ancient bull ring.
Once you reach the Plaza de Catalunya, you will get a small guided walking tour among the old giant landmarks walking through the Gothic quarter, the Cathedral Square, and Plaza Sant Jaume before having a quick break for lunch.
Head then toward the 1,236-meter-long mountain of Montserrat, where you can see the wonderful views of the multi-peaked rocky range.
Once you arrive, you will take the air-conditioned and wheelchair-friendly cogwheel train through the rack railway and enjoy a 15-minute trip among the spectacular panoramic views of the mountain until you reach the middle of the Montserrat Monastery.
You will be able then to visit the Royal Basilica and abbey of Montserrat, which holds the famous 12th-century Romanesque carving of Verge Moreneta (the Black Madonna) and the Benedict sanctuary of Montserrat which provides a mystical backdrop of the Virgin of Montserrat, the patron saint of Catalonia.
